Just got back from LinuxCon 2010 Brazil, (thank you Linux Foundation for inviting me ! ) where I was the speaker for Medical : Benefits of Implementing a Free Hospital and Health Information System.

Linus Torvalds and Luis Falcón at LinuxCon 2010

The event was great, I got the chance to see again my Brazilian friends, like Corinto Meffe, who is doing a great job on the public software portal. Corinto was the one who included Medical in the community of the Software Publico Brasileiro.

I also talked to Linus Torvalds about the GNU Solidario organization, and the countries we are currently working.

I am quite happy with the fact of having LinuxCon in LatinAmerica. This was the first year of the conference in South America and I’m looking forward to see more people and companies of LatinAmerica and Spain next year.

The same group with Francine and Rainer Kruger (Pandorga Linux)

You can find the paper and more pics of the event at the GNU Solidario Site or in the new GNU Solidario social network of at Amazee (http://www.amazee.com/gnusolidario). While you are there, just join the team !
